My life has improved 100% since reading this book WHY?
I'll tell you why:
2 years ago I wanted to have a sex change because I felt like a little girl in a mans body, I just didnt know who I was.
I was so low that 1 day i was just about to chop my pecker off when i stumbled across a book called 'shrooms'.
I read it and every page sprung sheer delight and optism into my mind, until eventually I took some magic mushrooms.
It made my mind feel free and i had such a good time it made me realise I was actually a man and had a mans mind and I no longer wanted to be a woman.
SO tbh reading this book saved my life and i dont know many books that can do that.
So please, please, please buy this book for the sake of a better life,. AMEN
Highly recommended for anyone with an interest in altered states of consciousness and for those who have a healthy interest in broadening their range of knowledge.
